How Ritualists Turn Churches & Mosques Into Business Centres

Tragedy struck in the Uzebba area of Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State, when a 36-year-old man Segun Odihiri chopped off the head of his 83-year-old mother for daring to raise an alarm after he attempted to rape his own daughter.

Reports say Odihiri who always threatened to kill his mother whenever they both had a misunderstanding was caught by her in the process of raping his own daughter and when she raised an alarm, the suspect reached for a cutlass and dismembered her head.

According to an eyewitness identified as Mr Ekemeiren Ojekhugbo, Odihiri was caught while he was trying to dispose the body of his lifeless mother.

“trouble started when Segun was about sleeping with his own daughter and his late mother caught him in the act and started screaming. In order to cover his shame, he took up a cutlass and cut off his mother’s head while the daughter ran for safety.

“Segun was caught by some youths who were not also spared as he injured two of them before he was eventually apprehended by the vigilante members,” the witness added.

Police investigation into the matter has commenced after the arrest of Odihiri who is now cooling his heels in police custody.

    Edo state is a home of vices from Adam. How can someone be forcing himself on his daughter? And got pissed off when caught by chopping off his mother’s head. This is sheer wickedness.

      It’s everywhere, so don’t personalise it to Edo state alone. It’s just the end of the world vices.

    Allah can never forgive someone who killed his mother . This is a great abomination in Islam, Sharia law provision for this heinous crime is instant death by slaughtering him to feel the agony of death too.

    “trouble started when Segun was about sleeping with his own daughter and his late mother caught him in the act and started screaming.”

    Women will be screaming for every little thing. Couldn’t she have handled that matter maturely?

      You must be sick! Will you rape your own daughter? The man was trying to rape his daughter and you expect the old mother to keep quiet because she wants to handle it maturely? I’m not sure you cannot do the same

    Most people with the name Segun are always desperate to do whatever they want to do. That name is a disease of desperation in both good and bad ways.

    The man deserves to be killed, he should not be forgiven at all!
